SoCal Cross Stitchers GTG!

I had a great day on Saturday!  Nine of the members of the Southern California Cross Stitchers Yahoo Group met at We, of the Needle for a get-together.  Kathy, Susan, Shaunterria, Sandy, Mindi, Cherise, Ruth, Janis, and I stitched and shopped and traded and ate and talked and talked all day!  I brought six different WIPs to stitch, but only did four of them.

I started Treats in the Lizzie*Kate Boo! Club series.  This is part 2 of 12.  I stitched some of the border and one of the candy corn pieces.
Boo! Club (Treats)
I did ONE row on my Lizzie*Kate Very Scary Mystery Sampler.  This is the first time I used Weeks Dye Works floss and was happy to see the changing shades of color in that dark green line!  Several of the other ladies in the group are also stitching this one.
Very Scary (Part 1) update #1
I finished the corner flower motifs and the lazy daisy stitches (my first time) on Teresa Wentzler's Hummingbird.  Now that all the over 2 stitching is done, I can start on the hummingbird in the center, which is stitched over 1.
Hummingbird update #5
I bought some Gentle Arts Sampler Threads (GAST) at the LNS for Quaker Moon.  This is also the first time I've used GAST.  I stitched the owl's eyes in Gold Leaf which is so nice and shiny!
Quaker Moon update #1
Then when I got home, I stitched on All's Good in the 'Hood from Kincavel Krosses.  I stitched more of the border along the corner and bottom using DMC 115, variegated garnet.
All's Good in the 'Hood update #2
Happy Stitchy February, everyone!

Debbie, you always get so much done! Your stitching get-together sounds like a blast. I wish I had something like that in my area.

Hi Debbie. Wow you have been busy. I really love the Lizzie Kate one. It is getting me in the Halloween mood even though we have a long way to go yet. The variegated DMC thread also looks lovely. I will have to give them another go.

You got so much accomplished! Congrats. I have been a fan of WDW and Gast, with the exception of the black flosses in eitber set. They seem to knot and fray too much for me. I always use 310 in their place.

Wow - did you ever have a productive day! Great WIPs!

Linda said...

You got so much done in one day Debbie. Great progress on all the pieces. Sounds like such a fun day. Sure wish there was a group in my area. Looks like Hummingbird might be your next finish.
